ALBA Group Expands Activities in Turkish Scrap Metal Market

BERLIN, December 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

INTERSEROH Scrap and Metals Holding GmbH acquires scrapyards in the Balkans

On December 21, 2012, INTERSEROH Scrap and Metals Holding GmbH, subsidiary of environmental service provider and raw materials trader ALBA Group, acquired the company Reukema Balkan SRL. Thus, the ALBA Group expands its activities in the Balkans: Altogether the purchase covers twelve scrap yards in Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro and Romania. The headquarters for the company, which will trade under the name "ALBA Balkan Recycling SRL", is in Bucharest. The managing director and co-shareholder of ALBA Balkan Recycling SRL is Zlatko Garac. The purchase is still subject to the approval of the relevant cartel authority.

"With this acquisition we are very pleased to strengthen our activities in South Eastern Europe, and therefore have a stronger presence in the Balkans - especially towards Turkey," explains Joachim Wagner from the Board of Directors for the Steel and Metals Recycling segment of ALBA Group.
With the purchase, ALBA Group can also build on their role as the leading provider of steel and metals recycling in the Balkans, and moreover the company can improve its position as a scrap metal supplier in Turkey: In a booming European market, Interseroh thus climbs into the Top Ten of active scrap metal suppliers in Turkey. The company already supplies the Turkish market with its deep-sea terminal in Dordrecht (port of Rotterdam/The Netherlands).

The new ALBA Balkan Recycling SRL will be active from now on particularly in the purchase of ferrous scrap metal (iron scrap) from smaller to medium-sized suppliers. The such bundled amounts then primarily supply Turkish steel mills. In addition to the existing scrap iron business, future trade will also be established in the Balkans in so-called non-ferrous metals.

Joachim Wagner: "With Zlatko Garac, an absolute expert in the field of steel and metals recycling serves as a director of our company. With his vast experience and expertise, especially in the Balkan markets, he will decisively drive our business forward."

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions.
